1963 #1-6 (1993)
Written by Alan Moore
Colors by Marvin Kilroy and Tony Tollin
Published by Image Comics
If such a thing could be called it, 1963 is minor Alan Moore. In 1993, Image Comics was still a very young company created by the “hot” artists of the time when Jim Valentino, always the most old timey alternative rebel of the Image crew, got Moore, Steve Bissette, Rick Veitch, John Totleben and a bunch of their friends to create 1963, a pastiche on the early days of Marvel comics. The Fantastic Four becomes Mystery Incorporated. Iron Man becomes the Hypernaut. Spider-Man becomes The Fury, and the Avengers become The Tomorrow Syndicate. Image’s slick and calculated characters took a backseat to Moore and company’s retro insanity. To create a whole package, even the ads and editorial pages recreate the feeling of a bygone age. »

Everything we know about Captain America: Civil War
When asked by a fan about the superhero clash at the Edmonton Comic Expo, Lee revealed he was on "whatever side Captain America was on, because he's the best, pure-hearted person in the whole world" (via ComicBook.com).
He continued by saying Chris Evans does a "beautiful job" before jokingly adding: "I say that because he likes me, and anyone who likes me is a great actor."
During the panel, Lee also revealed that he doesn't keep up with comic books that much anymore due to his eyesight.
"I look at the covers and I try to guess what's going on. All I know is, »

For years, the Fantastic Four immodestly bore the title “The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine.” Introduced in 1961, the title ushered in the age of Marvel Comics, inaugurating the creative explosion of writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, which has been compared in musical terms to John Lennon and Paul McCartney during the Beatles’ heyday.
All of that makes the rather tortured history of the franchise onscreen, especially given the current ascent of comicbook blockbusters, all the more perplexing — most recently with Fox’s reboot “Fantastic Four,” which comes eight years after the last live-action “Fantastic Four” effort, a sequel subtitled “Rise of the Silver Surfer.”
Not only has the newest project been bludgeoned by critics, but the director, Josh Trank, responded by implying that the studio, 20th Century Fox, was responsible for its failings. Whatever the underlying truth, for comicbook fans it raises the specter of the bad old days, »

Fantastic Four #1, November 1961
Founding Members: Mr. Fantastic (Reed Richards, who can stretch and contort his body to a superhuman degree), Invisible Woman nee Girl (Susan Storm Richards, who can create invisible force fields and turn herself and others invisible), Human Torch (Johnny Storm, who can generate intense heat and flames on command, which also enables him to fly), Thing (Ben Grimm, who was transformed into a massive rock-like creature with super-strength.)
Traditionally, the Fantastic Four operate out of the top floors of the Baxter Building, a Manhattan skyscraper owned by Reed Richards (the lower flowers are rented out to tenants). After the original Baxter Building was destroyed, it was replaced by Four Freedoms Plaza, »

'Ant-Man': Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. 'Ant-Man' box office below expectations: Lowest Marvel Cinematic Universe domestic debut Starring Paul Rudd as a bug-like (sizewise) action hero, Ant-Man was expected to open with $60-$65 million from 3,856 U.S. and Canada locations this past weekend, July 17-19, '15. That didn't happen. A mere three days ago, Variety enthused that Ant-Man was "marching to a solid $65 million weekend at the U.S. box office." But instead of a $65 million domestic debut like those of Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant-Man bowed with a considerably more modest $57.22 million (down from the studio's $58.04 million Sunday estimate), including Thursday evening screenings. This latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry averaged a highly disappointing – especially for an McU entry with loads of steeper-priced 3D and IMAX / Pfl screenings – $14,841 per location. But really, why "highly disappointing"? Trailing 'The Incredible Hulk' Even taking into account the fact »

"It’s going to be certainly a part of our Phase 3," said Marvel Studios Ken Feige about 'The Wasp'.
"It is going to be a very important moment (in 'Ant-Man') and — spoiler alert! — we see that suit for the first time, and her father now is finally giving it to her...
"...and realizes that he can’t hold her back from what is essentially her destiny. It's gonna' be a very big part of one of our upcoming films..."
"I was raised by two superheroes," said Lilly about her character, "so, I'm a pretty screwed up human being.
"I am also fairly capable, strong, and kick-ass, which is wonderful to play, but the most fun to play was just how »

“Ant-Man” demonstrates both the power of the Marvel brand and what can hold it back.
The film’s $58 million debut would have been a strong start for nearly any other company, but for Marvel, which has fielded a dizzying number of blockbusters, it is something of a disappointment. “Ant-Man’s” opening ranks below the numbers that films centering on Captain America, Thor and Iron Man put up during their launches. More importantly, it failed to top the $60 million domestically that most analysts predicted it would make this weekend.
There is a crucial difference, however, between “Ant-Man” and other superhero movies. In the Marvel universe, Ant-Man is more of a utility player than star attraction. Given the dubious pedigree, it’s doubtful that many other companies could have made a movie about a man with the powers of a household pest and enjoyed stronger results.

Marvel Premiere #47, April 1979 (as Ant-Man)
Powers and Abilities
After repeated exposure to a gaseous form of size-altering Pym Particles, Scott Lang now possesses the innate ability to shrink in size at will. In addition to this superhuman ability, Lang is also an expert in electronics, and a passable thief.
Gadgets and Accessories
The helmet Lang wears as Ant-Man grants him the ability to communicate telepathically with ants and other insects, and is equipped with a sound amplification system so he can be heard when shrunk down. The helmet can also be sealed off to outside air, and carries a limited air supply of its own.
Before gaining the ability to shrink on his own, Lang kept a gaseous form of Pym Particles in the belt of his costume to facilitate his size changes.
